EXPECTATIONS IN ELEVATOR AND ESCALATOR ARE POSITIVE The share of Turkey in global elevator and escalator sector which expected to grow at 6 percent and reach 125 million dollars of amount by 2021 is increasing day by day. While foreign trade volume of Turkish elevator and escalator sector that demands for building in domestic market and neighbouring countries keep it high, the sector export has shown an increase at 20,8 percent. Current rate of capacity usage of the sector remains at around 60 percent.
onsidered as one of the most important inventions of human history, fork lifts/cranes has been the most important source of power for societies to build bigger structures and in-
frastructure systems for thousand years. Even if this brilliant solution brought to vertical lifting was developed for thousand years, human and animal power was used in these systems with hemp rope. While it is believed that the first el-
evator principle in the history was developed by Archimedes in B.C. 282, we should say that we owe Pascal, Evangelista Torricelli and Daniel Bernoulli who examined hydraulic elevator systems used today and hydrodynamics and flow
and movement of liquids and found the energy that fluids have. The history of proceeding from fork lift system to elevators carrying freight and passenger occurred in the first years of 19th century. Carrying the loads to the upper floors was a big source of problem in the buildings that started to rise with the beginning of industrial revolution in the 17th century. Between 1803-1804, when William Strutt, a British inventor faced this problem in the factory he had taken over from his father in England, he created a design solving this first passenger/freight elevator problem. After this design in strap/ pulley type with manuel driving system, then tens of new poweroperated design became popularized quickly all over the world. We know that the first elevators in Turkey were used in Pera Palas Hotel opened in 1892, Khedive Palace and İzmir in 1907. While the elevator in Pera Palas Hotel was poweroperated, the elevators in Khedive Palace and İzmir were operated with steam engine and fluid power respectively. THE INVENTOR OF SAFETY IN ELEVATOR: OTIS when it comes to elevator, the first name springing to mind is Elisha Graves Otis, an American inventor. The reason why Elisha Otis is known as the “inventor of elevator” was his brilliant solution to the need of emergency brake system to prevent the elevators from falling. The biggest concern about carrying passengers with elevators used only in industry by 1854 was elevators falling down could not be slowed down. In May 1854, exhibiting his “Developed Elevator” in New York Crystal Palace, Otis cut the hanging rope of the platform on which he was standing and left the platform for free fall. Despite of the crowd looking at him with full of fear, the platform did not fall and
restrained itself. In the system developed by Otis, a spring forced the ratchet sawtooth to stick around the iron bar and secure the vehicle safely. Therefore, proving that the system he developed can be used safely, while Otis had his name written in the history in gold letters, this main principle is still being used in today’s elevators with the cutting-edge technology. A GROWTH AT 6 PERCENT IS EXPECTED BY 2021 In the elevator and escalator sector that has a big-scale market economy today, expectations for growth remains on the agenda. In the report “Global Estimation of Elevator and Escalator Market for 2021 according to Type, Service, Elevator Technology and End User Sector” of Research and Markets, one of the biggest market research companies of the world, it is estimated that the sector will grow at 6 percent by 2021 According to the report asserting the expectation that elevator and escalator market will show a growth from 88,8 billion dollars recorded in 2015 to 125,2 billion dollars in 2021, the increasing demand in Asia Pacific region and wide-scale applications continues to support the demand.
On the other hand, according to the data of UN Statistics Department, while world’s elevator need came up 6 billion dollars last year, the countries exporting mostly are listed as China with 1,4 billion dollars, Spain with 1,4 billion dollars and Germany with 546,8 million dollars. TURKISH ELEVATOR SECTOR IS ALSO ON THE RISE In Turkey, on-going projects in various segments such as urban transformation, renewal, hotel, hospital, MALL, residence, office buildings and rapidly-increasing number of subway stations contribute to the growth curve of elevator and escalator sector. According to 2016 data of TSI (Turkish Statistics Institute), while 530 thousand elevators are used in Turkey, it is highlighted that this number will show a rapid increase in the coming years. Considering the location of Turkey and its closeness to the important markets and the demand of renewal in our neighboring markets, we can say that elevator and escalator sector will continue to grow. Within this scope, while it is recorded that projects to be conducted in the next period will bring important opportunities, it is notified that the process should be managed well in
rope, controller card, controller panel, guide rail, indicating devices, system for bringing to floor, floor and cabin operating panel, excessive load system, cabin and counter weight suspensions, hydraulic cylinder, gearless machine, photocell, rate control devices, control systems, skate, sensor, rail consoles, balance chain, switch, VVVF inverter, rot apparatus, pulley, machine roomless systems. While foreign trade volume of elevator and escalator sector that provides over 20 thousand employees with employment was calculated as 425,1 million dollars last year according to the records of TSI, 22,7 percent of reduction in import of the sector that increased its export rates at 20,8 percent compared to 2016 was written to the sectorâ€™s records as a positive value. In addition to this, considering activity field of Turkish elevator system, we can say that turnover of the sector remains at the level of 500 million dollars with the contribution of mounting, documentation services, periodical control services, component production and maintenance services. terms of both public and sector in order to develop the technological infrastructure of Turkish elevator and escalator sector. THE SECTOR STARTED TO PRODUCT IN 1950s Having fronted to production from import in 1950s, Turkish elevator sector entered into the process of a big change with new technologies developed in the world and succeeded to reach an important market share in world trade. According to Industrial Registry Records, it is reported that rate of capacity usage of the sector is at around 60 percent while the number of companies engaged in elevator mounting and elevator component manufacturing. Elevator
sector, component manufacturing, elevator mounting, and maintenance and repair proceeds in three main branches. While component manufacturing is completely considered as an expertise field of machinery manufacturing, mounting works are assessed within the scope of engineering and contracting services and performs the process of elevator mounting by using the components produced in various factories. WHAT DO WE PRODUCT? WHAT DO WE IMPORT? We can see all the main components in elevator parts produced locally in Turkey such as cabins, machine-engine group, full or semi automatic cabin and floor doors,
THE OPPORTUNITY TO GROW CONTINUES Stating that elevator and escalator sector has been recently going through a lucky period Sefa TargÄąt, Chairman of Board of Directors of Lift and Escalator Industry Association (AYSAD) emphasizes that new and expanding investments in the sector cannot be realized at a level congruously with the opportunities brought by market due to the scale problem and tough and irrational competitive resulted from this problem. Mentioning also that safety is always the most important agenda item in the sector, Mr. TargÄąt stresses the safety of employees of elevator industry as much as passengers using the elevator.
